– Find a healthy hate for your eating disorder and a passion to get rid of it.
– Know that every single mouthful of food is a win for you. Equally know that every plate that you walk away from is a win for your ED. – Be brutal with yourself if you have to do that in order not to let your ED win. Ever.
